Who had the best one liner? The Suicide Squad (2021) - Review

Supervillains Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, Peacemaker, and a collection of nutty cons at Belle Reve prison join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X as they are dropped off at the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.

I have no idea what to say about this movie. Truly, I am amazed that some of these ideas get made into movies and pass the smell test of ridiculousness. Even if you get rid of the 1000 foot starfish this movie was filled with so many stupid things I am embarrassed for the actors that were convinced by their agents to star in this film. Don't get me wrong there will be a bunch of fans that love what they have made, but I am the kind of fan that wants a little more drama and less dopiness in my superhero movies. There was some good action and some good one-liners, but this one was so forced and tried too hard to be funny that the jokes often bombed and the situations were usually over the top and just ridiculous. I thought the first movie was marginal, this one is just plain bad. I still wonder how DC movies get funded when they spend so much and the outcome is so mediocre. The fans need to start making these companies pay a little more attention to making a better movie. Do better if you ever want to catch up to Marvel.

Ranking 5/10

At the theater now.
